In 2010, Sundari Ganapathy, who holds a gold medal from both Anna University and the M.Tech programme at the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras, co-founded SpiralUp Solutions to provide editorial services to foreign publishers. In the year 2020, as the world economy collapsed, Sundari began to wonder why her company had stuck with editing instead of writing. Edisun Consultancy Services’ publishing label, “I Am An Author,” got its start because of this. The self-publishing firm “I Am An Author” gives debut authors of all ages—even children—a chance to get their work out there. Almost 200 children’s authors and 50 first-time authors are among their more than 250 published authors in English, Tamil, and Hindi novels. They have faith that their writing will motivate people to make a difference in the world.
